Greetings from in-side the magic...

     if you are thinking of auditions for dlrp here are some tips/facts

you can contact casting on-line you will need c.v. letter current photo and be over age of 18yrs thay will email you when audition dates are due..

fact: london or leeds uk auditions you will have to pay your own travel costs

fact: there will be many people from 100 upwards

fact: you will be told about dlrp charactor/parade

fact: there are three stages

fact: if you make it you will be asked for call back in afternoon

   now for the none facts that you are not told on the day of audition

you will not be told how many contracts there is or what there looking for
you will not be told that you have to pay for travel to disney and you will need money for housing deposit and cart orange which is bus travel until you get contract : eurostar £100 housing £170 cart orange £32

you will not be told which disney housing you will be in untill you get there
you will not be told that you will have to share appartments with other castmember and it could be from sharing with 2 and up to 6 people.

when you start you will have 45 days start period within that time you can leave if its not for you but please note! thay can send you home if your not what thay want or you break the rules and you will not know until the last minute if you will be staying or not..

there are 2 forms of contract cdi short term / cdd long term

OKAy - but for somea reason it came to me as ifyou wer eprety unhappy with how they didn't tell stuff upfront, making Disney seem like a bad company to work for, which for some reason I might just understand...

I just didn't realy get why it was posted here like that...

Other than that - the info probably is most welcomed by people that are in fact interested in it :)

Greetings from in-side the magic...

the attractions casting is a lot differnt from charactor/parade..

firstly to apply for attractions there is no auditions just an interview but to pass you need to speak differnt lang eg: french english but bonus is you speak more.also you work more for your pay..

charactor/parade it dont matter if you only speak english as you can learn when your there its a bonus for yourself if you do know french also in the parade you work 35hrs a week 2 days off 8hrs per day but you only physically work between 3/4 hrs a day but get paid for the full 8hrs..

on attractions you can work between 8/10hrs a day 3days off but you only get two 15mins and 1hrs lunch and is very hard work ..(summer )


more to follow  ...remember smiling is most important but fun too
